The Watchman Episode 149: Can Great Britain Reclaim Its Christian Zionist Heritage?


[DRAMATIC MUSIC] -[ERICK STAKELBECK] THIS
WEEK ON THE WATCHMAN. WITH ANTI-SEMITISM REACHING
RECORD LEVELS IN GREAT BRITAIN. EVEN AMONG SOME LEADING
POLITICIANS, WE HEAD TO LONDON FOR A SIT DOWN WITH
ISRAEL’S TOPIC DIPLOMAT IN THE U.K., MARK REGEV. – WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
THAT IN THIS COUNTRY IN THE 21ST CENTURY YOU’D SEE
THE REBIRTH OF ANTI-SEMITISM. EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IN
FREEDOM, THEY SHOULD STAND BY ISRAEL TOO BECAUSE
WE REALLY ARE, I BELIEVE AN ISLAND OF
FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE IN A VERY, VERY
DIFFICULT REGION. -[ERICK STAKELBECK] PLUS,
AN AWARD-WINNING JOINS US IN JERUSALEM
WITH AN EXCLUSIVE REPORT ON HOW EUROPE IS HELPING
TO FUND ILLEGAL PALESTINIAN CONSTRUCTION ON ISRAELI LAND. GET THE INSIDE STORY
THIS WEEK ONLY RIGHT HERE ON THE WATCHMAN. [DRAMATIC MUSIC] – AND WELCOME TO THE
WATCHMAN FROM JERUSALEM. FOLKS, WE KNOW THAT ISRAEL
AND THE UNITED STATES HAVE A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP
THAT’S ONLY GROWING STRONGER. YET ISRAEL ALSO HAS OTHER
VERY IMPORTANT ALLIANCES AROUND THE WORLD AND ONE OF
THEM IS ABOUT TO BE TESTED. ON DECEMBER 12TH, IN
LESS THAN TWO WEEKS TIME, GREAT BRITAIN WILL
HOLD A GENERAL ELECTION AND ITS OUTCOME COULD
HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT ON RELATIONS BETWEEN
ISRAEL AND THE U.K. INCUMBENT PRIME MINISTER
BORIS JOHNSON WILL TAKE ON THE LEADER OF THE LABOUR
PARTY, AN OPENLY ANTI-ISRAEL RADICAL NAMED JEREMY CORBYN. NOW CORBYN HAS BEEN
CALLED AN ANTI-SEMITE BY MEMBERS OF HIS OWN PARTY. SOME OF WHOM HAVE LEFT
LABOUR OVER CORBYN’S EMBRACE OF ANTI-SEMITES. HE’S CALLED THE TERROR GROUPS, HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH,
HIS “FRIENDS”. AND HE EVEN SHARED A PLATFORM
WITH A HAMAS LEADER IN 2012. IN 2014, CORBYN ATTENDED
A CEREMONY IN TUNISIA HONORING THE PALESTINIAN
TERRORIST BEHIND THE 1972 MUNICH OLYMPIC MASSACRE IN
WHICH 11 ISRAELI ATHLETES WERE MURDERED. THE POSSIBILITY THAT CORBYN
COULD BECOME GREAT BRITAIN’S NEXT PRIME MINISTER
SHOULD SET OFF ALARM BELLS FOR ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS ISRAEL. BRITAIN HAS BEEN A STRONG
ALLY OF ISRAEL FOR YEARS BUT AS PRIME MINISTER
YOU CAN BET JEREMY CORBYN WOULD DO EVERYTHING IN
HIS POWER TO CHANGE THAT. ANTI-SEMITIC INCIDENTS ARE
ALREADY AT AN ALL TIME HIGH IN GREAT BRITAIN AND
IF SOMEONE LIKE CORBYN CAME TO POWER, JEW-HATERS
WOULD BE EMBOLDENED EVEN MORE. WITH ALL OF THIS DEVELOPING
WE DECIDED TO HEAD TO LONDON WHERE WE SAT DOWN RECENTLY
WITH ISRAEL’S AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED KINGDOM,
MARK REGEV TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE U.K. TAKE A LOOK. WELL AMBASSADOR REGEV
THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US HERE ON THE WATCHMAN
SHOW AT THE ISRAELI EMBASSY IN LONDON. – IT’S A PLEASURE HAVING
YOU, A REAL PLEASURE. – YEAH, IT’S GREAT TO BE
BACK WITH YOU AMBASSADOR. HEY, WE KNOW OBVIOUSLY
THAT THE U.S. AND ISRAEL HAVE THIS SPECIAL
RELATIONSHIP BUT THE U.K. AND ISRAEL ALSO HAVE A
VERY CRUCIAL RELATIONSHIP. TELL US, AND YOU’VE SEEN
THIS UP CLOSE IN YOUR ROLE OBVIOUSLY AS THE AMBASSADOR
HERE IN THE U.K. FOR ISRAEL. TELL US ABOUT THAT
ISRAEL/U.K. BOND. WHY IT’S SO STRONG AND WHY
THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ALLIANCE, NOT ONLY
FOR THE JEWISH STATE BUT FOR THE U.K. – SO FIRST OF ALL ERICK,
WHAT YOU SAID UP FRONT IS 100% CORRECT. ISRAEL AND THE UNITED STATES HAVE A VERY SPECIAL
PARTNERSHIP, A VERY SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP AND ISRAEL
HAS NO BETTER FRIEND THAN THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA. HAVING SAID THAT, THE
BRITISH ARE GOOD FRIENDS TOO AND WE ENJOY A GOOD
RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BRITISH. WE COOPERATE WITH THEM
IN DEFENSE MATTERS. WE’VE GOT A GOOD
TRADE RELATIONSHIP. WE’VE GOT A GOOD
POLITICAL DIALOGUE AND THE TRUTH IS, AS YOU
KNOW BETTER THAN MOST THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
BRITAIN AND ISRAEL GOES BACK DECADES
IF NOT CENTURIES. – ABSOLUTELY, I THINK OF THAT
LONG-STANDING RELATIONSHIP AMBASSADOR, I THINK
OF THE 19TH CENTURY. YOU COULD SAY THE MODERN
CHRISTIAN ZIONIST MOVEMENT WAS REALLY BORN HERE
IN GREAT BRITAIN. YOU THINK OF LORD ALFRED
BALFOUR, WILLIAM HECKLER, ALL OF THESE PIVOTAL FIGURES
IN THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT IT WAS RIGHT HERE
IN GREAT BRITAIN. – CORRECT, 100%. CHRISTIAN ZIONISM IS IN MANY
WAYS BORN IN THIS COUNTRY. THERE’S A WONDERFUL
BOOK BY THE HISTORIAN, IT’S AN OLD BOOK, IT’S NOT A
NEW BOOK BY BARBARA TUCHMAN AND SHE TALKS ABOUT THE
IDEOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR THE CHRISTIAN ZIONISM. AND ULTIMATELY THE IDEA
THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE SHOULD BE FREE TO
RETURN TO THEIR HOMELAND TO BE ABLE TO HAVE NATIONAL
SELF DETERMINATION, TO BE A FREE PEOPLE
IN OUR HISTORIC LAND, THAT’S AN IDEAL THAT WAS
SUPPORTED BY MANY, MANY GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. – EVEN MORE CRUCIAL TODAY
THAT WE HAVE CHRISTIANS STANDING FOR ISRAEL HERE
IN THE U.K. BECAUSE WE DO HAVE A RISE IN ANTI-SEMITISM
HERE IN GREAT BRITAIN. ANTI-SEMITIC INCIDENTS
AT AN ALL TIME HIGH. WE EVEN HAVE ONE POLITICAL
PARTY HERE, THE LABOUR PARTY THAT’S BEEN KIND OF EMBROILED IN AN ANTI-SEMITISM CONTROVERSY. COULD YOU TALK MORE
ABOUT THAT AMBASSADOR, YOU’RE HERE IN THIS PIVOTAL
ROLE, YOU SEE THIS UP CLOSE. TELL US ABOUT THAT
PROBLEM HERE IN THE U.K. AND REALLY ACROSS
WESTERN EUROPE. – LOOK IT’S TERRIBLY
WORRYING, ESPECIALLY TROUBLING FOR THE LOCAL U.K.
JEWISH COMMUNITY. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
IN THE 21ST CENTURY, IN THIS COUNTRY, IN BRITAIN
AND YOU KNOW THEY SAY THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT IS
THE MOTHER OF PARLIAMENTS AND SO MANY IDEAS THAT INSPIRED
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION OF 1776 WERE IDEAS THAT
WERE BORN BRITISH LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC IDEAS, FREEDOM,
SEPARATION OF POWERS. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
THAT IN THIS COUNTRY IN THE 21ST CENTURY, YOU’D SEE
THE REBIRTH OF ANTI-SEMITISM. IT’S TERRIBLE. – ONE OF THE TACTICS
USED BY THE ANTI-SEMITES AND THE ANTI-ISRAEL FORCES
RIGHT HERE IN THE WEST IS BDS, BOYCOTT DIVEST FROM,
SANCTION THE JEWISH STATE. TELL US ABOUT THE DANGER OF BDS. IT’S KIND OF THE DESTRUCTION
OF ISRAEL BY OTHER MEANS IT SEEMS. TELL US ABOUT THE DANGER
OF BDS, HOW PREVALENT IS IT HERE IN THE U.K. AND HOW
IS ISRAEL FIGHTING BACK HERE? THE FIRST THING YOU
NEED TO KNOW ERICK IS THAT THESE VOICES
OF HATE ARE A FAILURE IN THE REAL WORLD. THEY CALL FOR NOT
BUYING ISRAELI PRODUCTS, I WANT TO TELL YOU AND YOUR
VIEWER SHOULD KNOW AS WELL, OUR NUMBER ONE TRADING
PARTNER ON THE PLANET IS OF COURSE THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA BUT NUMBER TWO AND THREE
INCLUDE THIS COUNTRY. SO ALL THOSE PEOPLE ARE
CALLING NOT TO BUY ISRAELI PRODUCTS, GUESS WHAT, THEY’RE
NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE LISTENING. THEY’RE BUYING ISRAELI PRODUCTS. LAST YEAR IN 2018, OUR THIRD
LARGEST TRADING PARTNER ON THE PLANET WERE THE
BRITS AND THIS YEAR I THINK ACCORDING TO THE
NUMBERS WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE BRITONS MOVE FROM THREE
TO TWO, TO THE SECOND PLACE. SO THESE PEOPLE CALLING FOR
A BOYCOTT OF ISRAELI PRODUCTS THEY ARE SPEAKING HATRED AND
A LOT OF PEOPLE APPARENTLY ARE NOT LISTENING. BUT WE’VE GOTTA FIGHT THEM AS
YOU GOTTA FIGHT ALL HATRED. I MEAN I JUST THINK THAT
THIS MOVEMENT IS A MODERN MANIFESTATION OF GOOD OLD
FASHIONED ANTI-SEMITISM . THAT’S WHAT IT IS. – YEAH AMBASSADOR SEEMS
TODAY THAT THE CLOAK OF ANTI-SEMITISM IS
NOW ANTI-ZIONISM. THAT’S THE NEW TERM FOR
ANTI-SEMITES THAT THEY’RE USING. – I AGREE 100%. WE DON’T HATE JEWS, WE JUST
THINK THAT ALL THE ISRAELIS SHOULD BE KILLED,
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? [ERICK LAUGHS] – SPEAKING OF WHICH, WHILE
WE’RE KIND OF SURVEYING THE THREATS AND THE
SHARED THREATS THAT ISRAEL AND THE U.K. ARE FACING
AND THE UNITED STATES, THE IRANIAN REGIME. LOOKING TO INCREASE THEIR
URANIUM ENRICHMENT NOW, DEFYING THE WEST AND
THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. TALK ABOUT WHY THE IRANIAN
REGIME IS NOT JUST A PROBLEM FOR ISRAEL AND THE
BROADER MIDDLE EAST, IT’S A PROBLEM FOR THE
WEST AND REALLY ALL OF JUDEO-CHRISTIAN WESTERN
CIVILIZATION, INCLUDING THE U.K. – LOOK IT’S CLEAR, AND
YOU’RE 100% CORRECT ERICK. IT’S NOT JUST A PROBLEM FOR
ISRAEL AND OUR ARAB NEIGHBORS WHO ARE ALL THREATENED
BY THE IRANIANS, IT’S A PROBLEM FOR THE PLANET. THIS IS A REGIME THAT WANTS
TO EXPORT WHAT THEY CALL THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION. AND IT’S A THREAT TO US ALL. I’LL GIVE YOU JUST TWO
VERY QUICK EXAMPLES. WE HAD DOCUMENTED INCIDENTS
OVER THE LAST YEAR OF IRANIAN GOVERNMENT
OFFICIALS BEING INVOLVED IN TERRORISM ON EUROPEAN
SOIL, DOCUMENTED INCIDENTS. SO THIS ISN’T SOMETHING THAT
MIGHT HAPPEN OR COULD HAPPEN, THIS IS SOMETHING
THAT IS HAPPENING. SECONDLY, THE
IRANIANS ARE BUILDING LONG-RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILES. LET ME BE FRANK, THEY’VE
ALREADY GOT MISSILES THAT CAN HIT ISRAEL. THEY’VE ALREADY GOT MISSILES THAT CAN HIT OUR ARAB NEIGHBORS. WHY ARE THEY BUILDING
MISSILES WITH RANGES TO REACH FAR AND
BEYOND, TO REACH EUROPE, MAYBE EVEN AMERICA ONE DAY. BECAUSE THEY SEE THE
WESTERN WORLD AS THEIR ENEMY AND TO IGNORE THAT
IS TO IGNORE REALITY. TO IGNORE THAT IS TO BE
LIKE THE PROVERBIAL OSTRICH AND PUTTING YOUR
HEAD IN THE SAND. YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE SAFER
BY IGNORING THE THREATS. – AND THEY HAVE A VERY
DANGEROUS PROXY OBVIOUSLY IN THE FORM OF HEZBOLLAH,
WHICH ALSO HAS GLOBAL REACH, EVEN IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE. AMBASSADOR LAST QUESTION. YOU’VE BEEN DOING THIS
FOR SOME TIME AS A GREAT AND ELOQUENT SPOKESMAN
FOR THE JEWISH STATE IN THE MEDIA NOW IN
A DIPLOMATIC ROLE. WHAT DRIVES YOU? IT’S A DEMANDING JOB,
YOU’RE A FAMILY MAN. WE’VE TALKED OFF CAMERA,
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO AND TO
DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO SERVICE TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL. – I AM A VERY, VERY
PROUD ISRAELI. AND FOR ME TO HAVE
THE POSITIONS I’VE HAD I FEEL HONORED THAT
THE STATE OF ISRAEL HAS ALLOWED ME TO SERVE IN
THE POSITIONS I’VE HELD. I ULTIMATELY BELIEVE IN MY
SOUL IN THE ESSENTIAL JUSTICE OF ISRAEL’S CASE OF
THE CAUSE OF ISRAEL. IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, WE WERE
A PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WE WERE SCATTERED
ACROSS THE PLANET. WE WERE PERSECUTED. WE WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. WE FACED VIOLENCE AND
OPPRESSION AND EVEN GENOCIDE. WHEN WE RETURNED HOME, WHEN WE
ESTABLISHED OUR INDEPENDENCE, OUR NATIONHOOD IN
OUR HISTORIC HOMELAND THAT IS A MODERN MIRACLE. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT I THINK
WE CAN ALL GET EXCITED ABOUT. AND IN A REGION THAT IS
PLAGUED BY DIFFERENT FORMS OF AUTOCRACY, DESPOTISM,
TOTALITARIANISM ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST, ISRAEL
TODAY STANDS OUT AS A BEACON OF FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE. A BEACON OF DEMOCRACY. AND I THINK THOSE ARE
REASONS WHY EVERYONE ONE OF FAITH IN HUMANITY, EVERYONE
WHO BELIEVES IN FREEDOM, THEY SHOULD STAND BY ISRAEL TOO. BECAUSE WE REALLY ARE, I
BELIEVE, AN ISLAND OF FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE IN A VERY,
VERY DIFFICULT REGION. – AMBASSADOR WELL SAID,
THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE APPRECIATE IT. – THANKS FOR HAVING ME ERICK. – THANKS AMBASSADOR. THANKS AGAIN TO AMBASSADOR
MARK REGEV FOR BRINGING US UP TO SPEED ON WHAT’S
HAPPENING IN THE U.K. WELL, WITH ANTI-SEMITISM
GROWING IN GREAT BRITAIN, CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR
ISRAEL IS TAKING A STAND. UP NEXT YOU’LL SEE HOW
CUFI-UK IS FIGHTING BACK AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF
ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE
IN THAT CRUCIAL NATION. DON’T MOVE.-[NARRATOR] HAMAS,
HEZBOLLAH, IRAN, ISIS.
THE SAME TERRORIST FORCES
THAT SEEK TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL
HAVE A BULLSEYE ON THE
BACK OF THE UNITED STATES.
AT CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR
ISRAEL, WE KNOW THAT ISRAEL’S
ENEMIES AND AMERICA’S
ARE ONE AND THE SAME.
WHEN ISRAEL COMES UNDER
ATTACK OUR NATIONWIDE NETWORK
OF OVER 7 MILLION MEMBERS
LEAPS INTO ACTION.
WE HELP LEAD THE
FIGHTS ON CAPITOL HILL
TO PULL OUT OF THE
DISASTROUS IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL,
TO MOVE THE U.S.
EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM
AND TO CUT FUNDING TO
THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY
OVER IT’S USE OF
AMERICAN TAXPAYER DOLLARS
TO FUND TERRORISM.WHEN CUFI SPEAKS,
WASHINGTON LISTENS.
AND AS RADICAL FORCES
THREATEN ISRAEL AND AMERICA,
WE NEED YOU HELP TO
SUPPORT THE IMPORTANT WORK
OF CHRISTIANS
UNITED FOR ISRAEL.
VISIT CUFI.ORG OR CALL THE
PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN.
WHEN YOU DEFEND ISRAEL,
YOU’RE DEFENDING AMERICA.
SO JOIN OUR MOVEMENT TODAY.[DRAMATIC MUSIC] – WELCOME BACK TO THE
WATCHMAN FROM JERUSALEM. DID YOU KNOW THAT THE MODERN
CHRISTIAN ZIONIST MOVEMENT WAS BORN IN GREAT BRITAIN? THAT’S RIGHT, IN THE 19TH
AND EARLY 20TH CENTURIES, MEN LIKE LORD ALFRED
BALFOUR AND WILLIAM HECKLER WERE INFLUENTIAL
ADVOCATES FOR THE REBIRTH OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL. TODAY, CUFI-UK IS CARRYING
ON THAT PROUD TRADITION. AND AS ANTI-SEMITISM
GROWS IN THE U.K., CUFI’S PRESENCE THERE IS
NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER. TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT
WE’RE DOING ABOUT IT. [SOMBER MUSIC] – IN 2014, WE HAD THE
BIGGEST RISE IN ANTI-SEMITISM HERE IN THE U.K. ON RECORD. IT JUST LEAPT 100%, 100%
INCIDENTS INCREASED. SO WE FELT ENOUGH’S
ENOUGH REALLY. SO WE WENT TO PASTOR
HAGEE AND SAID LOOK, WE’VE BEEN WAITING
FOR CUFI TO START, WHAT ABOUT US STARTING IT? AND HE SAID, “GO FOR IT.” ISRAEL IS OUR ROOT AND WE
GOTTA GET BACK TO OUR ROOTS. SO THAT WAS THE
MAIN THING FOR US. WE FELT COMPELLED REALLY
TO BE INVOLVED WITH ISRAEL AND WHATEVER WE DID
GOD JUST BLESSED US. CHRISTIAN ZIONIST WERE
PARAMOUNT IN ACTUALLY HELPING TO ESTABLISH THE
STATE OF ISRAEL. – LORD BALFOUR AT THE TIME
WAS ONE OF MANY CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS IN THE
GOVERNMENT AT THAT TIME. AND THEY SAW THE NEED FOR
ISRAEL TO HAVE THEIR OWN LAND AND THIS WAS 1919. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WAY BEFORE
THE HOLOCAUST AND WAY BEFORE THOSE TIMES. SO THERE’S A STRONG ZIONIST
MOVEMENT AT THAT TIME. BUT, THE PRO-PALESTINIAN, WHICH
IS REALLY JUST ANTI-ISRAEL THOSE GROUPS HAVE
BEEN VERY STRONG HERE. BIG INFLUENCE BOTH IN
THE SECULAR SOCIETY BUT ALSO WITHIN THE CHURCH. AND SO THERE’S A REAL NEED FOR
CHRISTIANS TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT THAT ISRAEL IS STILL
PART OF GOD’S PLAN. MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY BELIEVE
THE CHURCH HAS REPLACED ISRAEL IN THE ECONOMY OF GOD. THAT IS NOT THE
CASE AND WE’VE GOT TO GET THAT MESSAGE ACROSS. YES, WE HAVE CONCERN FOR
THE PALESTINIANS UNDER HAMAS AND THE SUFFERING
THAT THEY HAVE. BUT THAT’S NOT ISRAEL’S
FAULT AND THAT’S WHAT COMES ACROSS SO STRONGLY
HERE IN THE U.K. WE HAVE THIS AGENDA GOING ON
WHERE THE ANTI-ISRAEL LOBBY IS VERY, VERY STRONG. BUT IT’S ONLY BECAUSE THEY’VE
BEEN UNCHALLENGED THUS FAR. CHRISTIANS IN THE MAY
HAVE NEVER GOT INVOLVED IN POLITICS, THEY’VE
NEVER SPOKEN OUT. AND SO WE HAVE TO
RAISE UP A VOICE, WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE
THAT VOICE IS HEARD. MANY OF THE CHRISTIAN
ORGANIZATIONS DON’T HAVE THAT POLITICAL VOICE. AND WE’RE TRYING TO
MAKE PEOPLE MORE AWARE AND MAKE PEOPLE MORE
ADVOCATES FOR ISRAEL. WE’RE GETTING A MESSAGE
ACROSS THAT PEOPLE AREN’T GETTING ANYWHERE ELSE. SO THAT’S WHAT WE’RE
TRYING TO DO WITH CUFI-UK. WE PROBABLY ARE THE LARGEST
CHRISTIAN ADVOCACY GROUP FOR ISRAEL HERE IN THE U.K. BUT WE WORK WITH THE
JEWISH COMMUNITY. WE WERE VERY STRONG RIGHT
FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THAT WE WANTED TO WORK
ALONGSIDE THE JEWISH COMMUNITY. AND SO WE WORK WITH
THE BOARD OF DEPUTY’S, WITH PRO-ISRAEL ORGANIZATIONS
WHICH ARE JEWISH FOCUSED AND MOSTLY THEY’VE ACCEPTED US. WE WORK WITH THEM. WE’RE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THEM. AND THAT’S THE STRONG
PART OF OUR MESSAGE THAT WE ARE CHRISTIANS
AND JEWS COMING TOGETHER FOR ONE COMMON PURPOSE
WHICH IS ISRAEL. MOST THE CHURCHES IN THE
U.K. ARE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL. AND I HONESTLY BELIEVE
THAT UNLESS YOU HAVE ISRAEL AS PART OF YOUR
UNDERSTANDING AND YOUR ROOTS. YOU WON’T SEE THAT REVIVAL. GOD’S HEART IS STILL FOR ISRAEL
AND HIS HEART OF FOR PEOPLE. AND SO EVANGELISM WILL SUCCEED
WHEN PEOPLE GET A HEART FOR ISRAEL TOO. THEY’RE PART AND PARCEL,
THEY COME TOGETHER AND WHEN THEY COME TOGETHER
YOU’RE MORE PASSIONATE FOR THE LAST BECAUSE YOU
UNDERSTAND IT’S GOD’S HEART FOR ISRAEL, HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE. IT BRINGS YOU INTO
A GREATER REVELATION AND THAT’S WHAT WE NEED
TO SEE HERE IN THE U.K. SO YEAH, THERE’S ALWAYS
HOPE ISN’T THERE. WITH GOD THERE’S ALWAYS HOPE. – FOLKS, AT CHRISTIAN
UNITED FOR ISRAEL. WE ARE STANDING IN THE GAP
FOR ISRAEL, IN THE U.K., THE UNITED STATES
AND AROUND THE WORLD. YOU SEE THE INFORMATION
THERE ON YOUR SCREEN, SO CALL OR CLICK AND
JOIN OUR MOVEMENT TODAY. WELL COMING UP AN
AWARD-WINNING INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST IS WITH US TO
SHARE THE INSIDE STORY OF ILLEGAL PALESTINIAN
SETTLEMENTS ON ISRAELI LAND. THAT DOESN’T FIT THE USUAL

IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND IN THE HALLS OF
THE U.N. THAT ISRAELIS ARE OCCUPYING PALESTINIAN LAND. BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE
SHOE IS ON THE OTHER FOOT AND PALESTINIANS ARE
OCCUPYING ISRAELI LAND. AWARD-WINNING INVESTIGATIVE
JOURNALIST EDWIN BLACK JOINED US WITH THE INSIDE
STORY ON THE OCCUPATION THAT YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT. TAKE A LOOK. NOW WE HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT
ILLEGAL ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS, SO-CALLED ILLEGAL
ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS THE WEST BANK, BUT THERE ARE
SOME OTHER ILLEGAL SETTLEMENTS THERE THAT ARE TRULY ILLEGAL AND YOU’VE GOT THE INSIDE STORY. TELL US ABOUT IT. – THAT’S RIGHT WE’VE NOW PUT
INTO THE COMMON VERNACULAR THE TERM ILLEGAL
PALESTINIAN SETTLEMENTS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT AREA C. I’M GOING TO MAKE IT SIMPLE. EVERYBODY KNOWS THERE’S
THE OSLO ACCORDS. THE OSLO ACCORDS GAVE AN
AREA A FOR THE URBAN AREAS, RAMALLAH, ETC. UNDER THE PALESTINIAN
AUTHORITY AREA B, WHICH IS THE PALESTINIAN
RURAL AREA THAT’S IN A MIXED CONTROL AND AREA C, WHICH
IS MAINLY UNDEVELOPED THAT IS JUDEA AND SAMARIA,
ESSENTIALLY IT’S ABOUT 60% OF THE WEST BANK AND UNDER
OSLO INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT THAT IS 100% UNDER ISRAELI
CIVILIAN ADMINISTRATIVE AND SECURITY CONTROL. DESPITE THAT, A PLAN
WAS HATCHED IN 2009 CALLED THE FAYYAD PLAN TO CREATE
A DEFACTO PALESTINIAN STATE ON THE 1967 LINES WITHOUT
ANY REGARD TO OSLO, DIPLOMACY, NEGOTIATION,
CONSULTATION WITH ISRAEL AND NOW WE SEE THOUSANDS
AND THOUSANDS OF ILLEGAL PALESTINIAN SETTLEMENTS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT– – IN AREA C! – IN AREA C. – WHICH IS INTERNATIONALLY
RECOGNIZED ISRAELI TERRITORY. – THAT’S RIGHT AND IT’S
BEING DONE WITHOUT A PERMIT, IT’S HUNDREDS OF
KILOMETERS OF ROADS THAT ARE BEING BUILT. HUNDREDS OF SETTLEMENT AREAS,
THERE ARE OVER 9,000 DUNANS. THESE ARE OBSOLETE NUMBERS
BECAUSE EVEN DURING THE TIME YOU AND I ARE TALKING ABOUT
THIS MORE CONSTRUCTION IS GOING ON. THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF BARRIERS. THEY’RE EVEN SETTLING
ON IDF MILITARY ZONES. YOU CAN ASK, HOW
IS THIS POSSIBLE? IT’S BEING DONE IN BROAD
DAYLIGHT WITH LARGE SIGNS, HEAVY MACHINERY. – WHOSE DOING IT? – IT’S ALL BEING DONE
BY THE EU IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY. -[ERICK] MAHMOUD ABBAS. – MAHMOUD ABBAS, WHEN
HE FOUND A PARTNER FOR THIS IN WASHINGTON
IN 2009 THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AT
THAT TIME BARRACK OBAMA. AND SO EVERYTHING WAS
SET UP AND NOW HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE
BEING FUNNELED IN FROM THE EU AND FROM CONSTITUENT
AGENCIES AND NATIONS WITHIN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY. AND MUCH OF THE MONEY IS
BEING FUNNELED THROUGH, OPENLY FUNNELED THROUGH A
KNOWN ALLEGED TERRORIST FRONT FOR THE PFLP AND THE– – WHO IS THE PFLP? – THAT’S THE POPULAR FRONT FOR
THE LIBERATION OF PALESTINE, WHICH IS DIFFERENT
THAN THE POPULAR FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF
PALESTINE GENERAL COMMAND, THAT’S A DIFFERENT ONE. BUT IT’S STILL THE PFLP,
CONSIDERED ONE OF THE WORST TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS. -[ERICK] A STATE
DEPARTMENT DESIGNATED TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. – DESIGNATED
THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. DUE TO ISRAEL’S VIBRANT
DEMOCRACY IT HAS AN EXTREMELY COMPLEX AND SLOW-MOVING
JUDICIARY AND SO WHEN ISRAEL SEES ONE OF THESE
ILLEGAL CONSTRUCTIONS WHAT DO THEY DO? THEY MAKE THE EFFORT TO
SHUT IT DOWN, DEMOLISH IT. THE SAME PEOPLE FINANCING
THESE SETTLEMENTS ARE FINANCING NGOs,
WHO FINANCE LITIGATION, THE LAWSUITS IN COURT
CAN GO FOR 10 MONTHS, THEY CAN GO FOR 10 YEARS. THERE’S ONE GOING FOR 15 YEARS. YOU AND I ARE LIVING IN
THE UNITED STATES OUTSIDE WASHINGTON, IF WE BUILD
AN ILLEGAL STRUCTURE WITHOUT A PERMIT, IT IS
GOING TO BE TORN DOWN. NOW THEY CLAIM, FALSELY
IN THE MEDIA THAT THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW
PERMITS GIVEN WHICH IS WHY THE EU HAD TO DO THIS. THAT’S NOT TRUE. IN 2011 AND 2012, HUNDREDS
OF PERMITS WERE GIVEN FOR FULL RANGE OF INFRASTRUCTURE
AND HOUSING REQUESTS. MUCH OF THIS ACTIVITY HAS
BEEN HINGED AND PREDICATED UPON THE UN SECURITY
COUNCIL RESOLUTION THAT BARRACK OBAMA ABSTAINED
ON AND THAT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE THE GREEN LIGHT
FOR ALL OF THIS. -[ERICK] THIS DECEMBER 2016, HIS PARTING SHOT
BEFORE HE LEFT OFFICE. – THAT’S RIGHT AND WE
ALL KNOW WHAT THAT WAS. WHAT AMERICA’S DOING NOW
IS STANDING BY ISRAEL. THEY’LL STAND BY ISRAEL
IN THE SECURITY COUNCIL AND THEY’LL BACK ISRAEL
WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAEL TAKING LEGAL ACTION UNDER THE
INTERNATIONAL OSLO ACCORDS TO PROTECT THE INTEGRITY
OF JUDEA AND SAMARIA. – THANKS AGAIN TO OUR
FRIEND EDWIN BLACK FOR THAT GREAT
INVESTIGATIVE REPORT. WELL UP NEXT, MY FINAL
THOUGHTS ON THE RISE OF ANTI-SEMITISM
AROUND THE WORLD AND HOW YOU CAN TAKE
A STAND AGAINST IT. STICK AROUND.-[NARRATOR] FROM TERRORISTS
WHO WOULD ANNIHILATE HER
WITH BOMBS AND BULLETS.TO SO-CALLED ACTIVIST
THAT WOULD ELIMINATE HER
WITH BOYCOTTS AND
SANCTIONS, ISRAEL’S ENEMIES
ARE ON THE MARCH.IN WHY ISRAEL, YOU WILL
LEARN HOW TO BE AN ACTIVE
DEFENDER OF THE JEWISH
STATE, KNOWLEDGEABLE
AND POWERFUL AS YOU
STAND UP FOR TRUTH.
YOU’LL RECEIVE THE
BIBLICAL EVIDENCE PROVING
ISRAEL’S SPECIAL
PLACE IN GOD’S PLAN.
LEARN HOW HIS STEADFAST
COMMITMENT TO HIS PEOPLE
IS A MATTER OF
FACT, NOT OPINION.
FROM ITS MIRACULOUS
REBIRTH AS A MODERN STATE
TO THE DANGEROUS THREATS
IT PRESENTLY FACES,
ISRAEL’S INSPIRING
JOURNEY IS LAID OUT
IN THIS SHORT BOOKLET.SUPPORTING ISRAEL IS A BIBLICAL
MANDATE FOR ALL CHRISTIANS.
IN WHY ISRAEL, YOU WILL
DISCOVER WHY YOU SHOULD CARE
ABOUT THE JEWISH STATE AND
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STAND
WITH GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE.[DRAMATIC MUSIC] – AND WELCOME BACK, WE ARE
WRAPPING UP HERE IN JERUSALEM, THE ETERNAL AND ANCESTRAL
CAPITAL OF ISRAEL. THIS CITY, THIS
NATION IS A SAFE HAVEN FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE. ISRAEL IS THE ONE
AND ONLY JEWISH STATE AND IT’S NEEDED

THE SHOW, ANTI-SEMITISM HAS REACHED RECORD
LEVELS IN THE U.K. VIOLENT ANTI-SEMITIC
INCIDENTS ARE ALSO ON THE RISE IN OTHER EUROPEAN
NATIONS AND YES, EVEN IN THE UNITED STATES. THE ANCIENT CANCER OF

  • How about pagan Heritage ,Pagan Britain was before Christianity murdered it
    Reclaim Christmas as Saturnalia,.Bring back paganism

  • Malachi 3:6 For I am YAHWEH, I do not
    change. Because of this, you sons of

    Jacob are not destroyed.

    7 From the days of your fathers, you
    have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me,

    and I will return to you, says
    YAHWEH of Hosts. But you say, In what shall we return?

  • Please, let me reassure you all, I'm from the UK and Jeremy Corbyn IS NOT GOING TO WIN THE ELECTION. The media has ruined his name & he's too weak a candidate anyway. Yes it's a shame he don't support Israel too, but that's because first, him, like most people see Israel as having the upper hand and second he knows nothing about the holy scriptures and our God & our Lord Jesus & prophecy. There are crimes on both side & siding with one is human nature but, Jeremy Corbyn in my opinion is not antisemitic. He is purely siding with what he believes are the unfortunate ones. The media has dug a great hole for Corbyn on this subject but no one has anything to worry about. I'll eat my hat if he wins.

  • Hate Evil and fear the Lord GOD ALMIGHTY, He spared Not his own Son, Why will he Not spare his Chosen
    Ones,Be Courageous and Fear Not for the Enemy shall be Brought to Nought, For he Said ; l Am the LORD, God, of Abraham,lsaac, and Jacob, and my People Know My Voice, I Am with you Always,*¤*!
